On the first of May, it is moving day
Spring is here, so blow your job
Throw your job away
Now's the time to trust
To your wanderlust
In the city's dust you wait, must you wait
Just you wait

In a mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together
While you love your lover
Let blue skies, be your coverlet
When it rains we'll laugh at the weather
And if you're good, I'll search for wood
So you can cook, while I stand looking
Beans could get no keener reception in a beanery
Bless our mountain greenery home

Simple cooking means
More than French Cuisines
I've a banquet planned which is
Sandwiches and beans
Coffee's just as grand
With a little sand
Eat and you'll grow fatter, boy
S'matter, boy?
Huh, huh, 'atta boy

In a mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together
How-how-how-how-how we love sequestering
Where no pests are pestering
No dear momma holds us in tether
Mosquitoes here
Won't bite you dear
I'll let them sting, me on the finger
Beans could get no keener reception in a beanery
Bless our mountain greenery
Far from life's machinery
Bless our mountain greenery home
